Blueberry Bacon Pancakes

I don’t have a lot of breakfast recipes on this site. It’s usually too soon for me to come up with something creative that early in the morning. But for some reason, after my spate with blueberries and scrambled eggs (yum!), I decided on something different this morning. Pancakes! I’m sure you could put maple syrup, or whatever it is that people put on pancakes. But I liked these plain. A little bit of butter was...

Mediterranean Scotch Eggs

A very British snack with a twist…. I used to love scotch eggs when I lived in the UK. The almost perfect paleo snack.. if it weren’t for the breadcrumbs. So when I went low-carb, I was sad that I could no longer pop into Marks n Spencer’s and grab one. It has to be said, a crappy scotch egg is a major disappointment, but a delicious one – is absolute heaven! Of course, moving to Spain fixed that. I’m...

Not your average Blueberry Breakfast Muffin

Fruit and meat. Again! I found some blueberries in the fridge last week. Decided instead of making my typical blueberry protein scone – why not make some pork muffins. Nice. And it worked (for me). They look a little weird – which benefitted me, as I didn’t have to share them. Good thing as this recipe only made 6 muffins. Ingredients 400g ground pork 60g of raw, chopped bacon 120g blueberries 2 eggs 1 teaspoon fennel...

Raspberry Cocoa Energy Scones

Yeah, I know. More scones…. This is REALLY similar to the sweet potato tuna scones I made in January. But different. But they came out so well, I decided they deserved their own page. I found a baked sweet potato in the oven this morning. For some bizarre reason I bake 3 sweet potatoes whenever I bake them, and then consequently forget about the last one. So it was nice and well cooked (not burned!) when I discovered it this...

Blueberry Protein Blast with Oatbran

First off, this recipe is NOT paleo. I know most of my recipes are paleo or primal to suit the grain-free diet. In fact, 90% of the time, this is how I eat. But in an effort to shove more fiber and carbs into my diet (I’m a bit of a carb-o-phob….). I decided to stick a little bit of oat bran in my day every once in a while. I’m actually following a program by The Metabolic Effect, (there’s a pretty interesting...

Sweet Potato Tuna Scone

I baked a couple of sweet potatoes the other day. I haven’t baked a potato in years! I had one with some homemade meat sauce and it was lovely. But then I didn’t know what to do with the other potato… But here’s what I came up with… a sweet potato tuna scone! I struggle in the mornings to come up with an idea that is quick and grab and go. Not that I need to grab and go, actually, as I don’t...
